How Did I Get Lice?

Treating Head LiceThe first thing to do when you have head lice is to find an effective lice treatment and rid yourself of all lice and nits. The next thing to do is check your kids and partner because lice spread quickly. Lastly make sure you check your hoods and pillow cases for head lice. After you are sure you have rid your person and your space of lice you need to do some investigatory work to make sure you don’t fall victim to lice again.

 

Children are often the vector between lice in the community and lice in the home. If you have a child, that is where your investigation should begin. Children are packed into close quarters at school and camp so they can easily get lice from one another or a communal rug. If your child gets lice alert school officials because chances are other kids have lice as well.

 

Next think about where you could have contracted the lice. Did you lay down on a rug? Share a hooded jacket with a friend? Maybe you let your hair down at a theater? There are a lot ways to get lice so try to think about what you were doing right before symptoms began.

Head Lice Insurance

Head Lice InsuranceMost people do not know that many (not all) health insurance plans cover treatment of lice. That means you are free to go out and choose the lice treatment that best suits you and then you will receive a reimbursement for your expense. So when choosing lice treatment options you don’t need to cut corners.

 

The problem with many low-cost lice remedies is they are not necessarily effective.  FDA laws regulating products classified as cosmetic drugs are not as stringent as those regulating consumed drugs. The efficacy of a given lice treatment may not have been closely scrutinized. In almost instances they contain harsh chemical agents. These agents destroy the natural balance of nutrients in your hair rending it unlivable for most lice. The problem is it also severely damages your hair and scalp, not to mention that nits, lice eggs, may not all be killed. Even if your insurance does not cover head lice, it may not be wise to go for cheaper products.

 

Lice Busters can offer you the full range of treatment options from Lice Products to in-home treatments or walk-in visits. They will ensure that the lice and nits are naturally removed from the hair, preventing any future outbreaks. When it comes to getting rid of lice, do it right the first time and don’t look back.
